My name is Doug Traubel. I have the BROAD and PROVEN experience to lead the Ada County Sheriff’s Office into the future.
Ada County must lead the way in providing a safe community where we uphold Idaho’s conservative values. We have all witnessed what poor leadership has allowed in Portland and Seattle.
I welcome your questions and comments. Feel free to call me at 208-999-0779.
Doug Traubel joined the Ada County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) in 1994 after nine years in the Chula Vista PD. While at ACSO, he worked in several capacities including detective, patrol deputy, jail deputy, School Resource Officer, taught for POST Academy, and was an adjunct faculty member at Boise State.
Following his rewarding nine years at ACSO, Doug transferred to the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office where he continued his service to the county for 14 more years and took on duties as an Investigator and Lead Firearms Instructor.
Doug’s broad service in law enforcement spans over three decades, including 24 years dedicated to serving Ada County. These many years of career experience have molded Doug into a well-rounded, cutting-edge peace officer made for the times in which we find ourselves. Doug embodies the skillset and determination to help protect our core Republican values and the Idaho way of life.
He is committed to serving our community with integrity, transparency, and fiscal responsibility all while cultivating a culture of support within the Office. Deputies need to know that their Sheriff and the community support them.
“We are in this together and it will take all of us working together to keep Ada County the great place it is to live, work, play, and worship. I look forward to the opportunity to lead the way.” ~ Doug Traubel
